BREAKING MOVIE NEWS
With the Highlander reboot back on track with a new director, it was only a matter of time before new casting rumors began to emerge. Now that process has begun, and the production seems to be aiming very high with their first targeted actor: the legendary Tom Cruise.
Tom Cruise is crazy dedicated to his stunt work in all of his movies, but Mission: Impossible will always be his action baby. Which means it's no surprise that he's got something even crazier than the Burj Khalifa sequence in Mission: Impossible Ghost Protocol planned for deployment in Mission: Impossible 5.
Spoiler Alert: Tom Cruise dies a lot in Edge of Tomorrow. Ok, that's barely a spoiler, as the premise of the film involves Cruise's character living the same day over and over, as it resets every time he dies. With that said, if you haven't seen the movie yet, you might want to skip this video, as this darkly amusing "death edit" is kind of spoilery. Many of these scenes are better seen in context.
I know. You hear there's going to be a Tetris movie, and instinctively roll your eyes while bellowing, "Hollywood has officially run out of ideas." I hear you. But it gets worse, because Hollywood thinks this is the thing that will turn around low theater attendance. Things are the new stars, don't you know.
Clearly, Jeremy Renner loves his franchises. That’s why he’s a key player in not just The Avengers, but the Hansel & Gretel, Mission: Impossible and Bourne film series too. It turns out though that even he was previously worried about his roles in each of these franchises, and that he only took the part of William Brandt in Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol because Tom Cruise kept nagging him and he wanted to get off the phone.
Tom Cruise’s Jack Reacher, an adaptation of one of Lee Childs’ best-selling novels, was ignored despite terrific reviews. Thankfully, Cruise is going to get another crack at Jack Reacher, but only after a few key changes have been implemented in the burgeoning franchise.
This impressive B-roll footage from Tom Cruise's Edge of Tomorrow shows you how practical FX and CGI were used to create one of the coolest movies no one saw this summer. Cruise is a madman for doing his own stunts.
It was all the way back in 1996 that director Brian De Palma first introduced us Tom Cruise's Ethan Hunt and Ving Rhames' Luther Stickell, and the characters have been come back again and again in the years since.
Mission: Impossble 5 is steaming along in its production schedule at the moment. Which means it's time to find someone for Tom Cruise to try and stop from threatening international security. Sean Harris just might be that person.
2014 is evidently the summer of the Ice Bucket Challenge -- an effort to raise money and awareness for ALS -- and the trend has very clearly spread to movie sets.
How do you take a movie so well received as Edge Of Tomorrow and make sure no one goes and sees it? Simple: keep changing the damned title until nobody knows what movie to look for!
Before signing off, I asked Simon Pegg if he knew when he would begin filming the fifth installment of the Mission: Impossible franchise, where he’ll reprise his role as Benji Dunn. Pegg shared a few key details.
Tom Cruise is still one of the biggest stars in the universe. Edge Of Tomorrow is going to be considered an “underperformer” even though it could end up grossing $400 million worldwide. If a guy has a history of smash movies that continues until today, and he's a buddy of Abrams, and he's a Star Wars fan, you don't think Disney is going to act on that until now?
Alamo Drafthouse feels the need for Cruise! They're celebrating Tom Cruise's extensive body of work with an event called "Cruise Control," a mystery marathon of five Tom Cruise films on 35mm. It's set to take place at the Alamo Ritz in Austin, TX next month. Even for those of us who are nowhere near Texas, this trailer for Cruise Control will have us all craving a Cruise marathon.
Early in Tom Cruise’s career, he was able to find the balance between humor and seriousness repeatedly. In recent years, it’s been a little more difficult. So, it’s time we took a few steps back and celebrate how Edge Of Tomorrow truly gets its right. Here are the 6 funniest moments in the film…
Hollywood is filled with actors who definitely have a funny bone, but just no opportunity to show it. Here are a dozen actors that we thought could benefit from a lead comedic role, something silly and lightweight to diversify their careers and show their fans that sometimes, being a movie star means just having a good time.
Edge of Tomorrow has officially arrived in theaters! It's earned a lot of praise from critics. Now it's time for the rest of us to hash out what we loved (or didn't love) about the sci-fi film. Get ready for the necessary spoiler warning. If you haven't seen the movie yet, turn back now!
If anything, Tom Cruise is undervalued as an actor. Industry pundits pay close attention to his global drawing power, with little to no credit given to his performances – a short-sighted approach that overlooks some incredible turns under the direction of multiple, powerful directors.
Tom Cruise watches a movie a day. Only his movies though. Ok, he's kidding about that part, but the Edge of Tomorrow star did tell Jimmy Fallon that he keeps up with the latest films. Cruise visited The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon last night in anticipation of Edge of Tomorrow's arrival in theaters tomorrow (or tonight, technically).
Much like his recent film, Edge of Tomorrow, Tom Cruise seems to be in a constant loop of evaluation. His status as a box office star is constantly in question with every new film he releases, and so far he seem to be doing rather well for himself.
Okay, campers, rise and shine, and don't forget your booties 'cause it's cold out there today. Ok, I realize the Groundhog Day nods at Edge of Tomorrow are probably already getting tired, but it's hard to hear the words "It's a new day people" in the newest EoT trailer and not think of Bill Murray's alarm clock.
Edge Of Tomorrow is on the edge of most critic's summer movie pools. It could be a breakout hit that Tom Cruise and Doug Liman could ride to glory, or it could be another reminder to Emily Blunt that Scarlett Johannson took her spot on the Marvel Cinematic Bus to Paycheck Land.
Tom Cruise and Emily Blunt will be everywhere at once later this month for the premiere of Warner Bros.' Edge of Tomorrow. Ok, that's a bit of an exaggeration, but they're aiming to attend three premieres of the film in three separate countries a single day.
Tom Cruise Hit With $1 Billion Lawsuit Claiming The Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol Plot Was Stolen
Screenwriter Timothy Patrick McLanahan claims he first started shopping around a script he wrote called Head On back in 1998 and that some time between then and the making of Ghost Protocol the production team stole his idea and violated his copyright.
No reason has been given for Cruise's departure, though he was attached since May '12, and there's been very little momentum on the project thus far.
